STEBIC UPDATE:Exactly 3 Months Ago Lisa Stebic Disappeared, Family Wants Closure

(CBS) PLAINFIELD, Ill  — Exactly three months ago, April 30, 2007, Lisa Stebic a mother-of-two left home and never returned.

[..My words – Isn’t it strange that the police are wanting to talk again to the children but Craig Stebic’s attorney has denied permission.  I’m sure it would be hard for the children but it has now been 3 months and as upset as I’m sure they are I would think they would be stable enough to talk to the authorities especially if could mean it would help them find their mother or help them find out what happened rather than to leave them left wondering.  This leaves me thinking it is obvious the children know information that would incriminate Craig Stebic who is already now considered a “person of suspect”…… flagranny2]

Her family continues to press-on for answers.

The family of Lisa Stebic is erecting the billboards on Interstate 55 near State Route 30 and Canton Farm Road in the far southwest suburb. They hope the billboards will raise more attention about the case.

The billboard space has been donated by CBS Outdoor, the billboard division of CBS. [Full Story and related articles]

Police: Stebic is focus of probe – Lawyer says cops turning up the heat

“She always said, ‘If anything ever happens to me, look at Craig,'”

Citing the “minimal assistance” of Craig Stebic in finding his missing wife, Lisa, police on Thursday labeled him “a person of interest” in what they now say is a case of foul play.

Plainfield Police Chief Donald Bennett made the announcement at a news conference attended by about a dozen reporters. After the bespectacled chief read from a text and answered three questions posed to him previously, he quickly left the room as one reporter tried to ask if “person of interest” was the same as “suspect.”

Asked later in a telephone interview what it meant to define Stebic as a person of interest, the chief said: “He’s the focus of our investigation. We’d love to talk to him. Craig Stebic was the last person to see Lisa at her own residence.”

The term “person of interest” has no universally agreed upon legal meaning, said Richard Kling, a defense attorney and clinical professor at Chicago-Kent College of Law. It can refer to a potential witness but most often is a euphemism for suspect, he said.
